I owed, he was to get my $15,000 RV. He took the RV and now I can't get a hold of him. I also found he didn't do most of the work he was paid for. Can I get a warrant out for him for theft of my RV?

Call the police and report the RV stolen.

The police may tell you that this is a civil matter and they will not help you. If the police tell you this is a civil matter, file an action in replevin.

Q: I entered into a verbal employment agreement with a nation wide engineering firm for an upcoming project.

They then publicly announced my name as their inspector for the project. This cost me my current job and their position didn't happen. Can I sue?

Kyle Persaud
Kyle Persaud answered on Mar 21, 2019

It sounds like you relied on the firm's promise, and you relied on the promise to your own detriment. You may be able to sue under a theory of detrimental reliance.

Q: Traded in a car I owned for a new one Nov 2nd we talked one thing paper work said another not satisfied can I back out

And give them the car back and take mine back is that possible?

Doak Willis

Anything is possible if everyone agrees. However, since you state the contact was signed without your having read it to insure the accuracy of the contract, you will be bound to the terms if the seller insists on it being followed.

You can search to see if a mechanic's lien has been filed on your property by searching in the land records division of the Court house where the property is located. There is a fee for copies. If the creditor makes an attempt to foreclose on the mechanics lien you should be notified by a summons.

This is a great question. Generally judges are disinclined to allow a non-attorney to participate in proceedings. However, there is the authority to allow an agent under a power of attorney to participate on behalf of his or her Principal.

Since you did not sign the lease, a contract was not formed between you and the landlord thus you can not be held liable for your ex-roommates failure to pay the rent.

Just because your husband's application shows rejected and your SS# is wrong does not invalidate your lease.

Q: HOA is making me remove my wooden rail chain link fence.The covenants don't specifically say no chain link. Can I keep?

Can I keep the fence I have? The board voted for me to remove it.

Gary Johnston Dean answered on Apr 11, 2018

Before deciding to "Stand your Ground" against the HOA, consult a local real estate lawyer about this issue. It will be much cheaper now to get a good answer, than later. If he believes you are correct, a letter from him to the HOA should settle the matter. Good Luck, and thanks for visiting Justia.

Difficult to answer without reading your lease. BUT, don't pay anything beyond rent due up to the time you leave. The landlord has a legal duty to try to rent your apartment to "mitigate" damages. If the unit rents promptly, you are only responsible for paying for the time it was not... Read more »
